The College of Human Sciences has a rich tradition of applying scientific principles and creative advancements to enhance human well being and improve the quality of life. We live in a time where educated, innovative individuals will be called upon to solve serious issues that impact the human condition. This tradition and focus remain at the heart of our teaching, research and discovery, and outreach today.

The intricacies of the human condition require multiple disciplines and approaches working together to discover knowledge to improve health and well being. The College of Human Sciences brings four disciplines together to address the challenges we face as individuals, families and communities. The three departments — Design, Housing and Merchandising; Human Development and Family Science; Nutritional Sciences — and the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management provide solutions to everyday concerns and complex challenges.
